Awaiting Repair for Seven Years

A depression on a corner of East 79th Street and York Avenue has been causing dangerous conditions for far too long

By Roy H. Carlin

Upper East Side For seven years, where the M31 and M79 Cross town stop, at the northeast corner 79th Street and York Avenue, there has been a depression at the street curb which collects water, as it did on March 29 and 30th. In winter, passing vehicles spray the water on the sidewalk creating glare ice where bus passengers disembark. The passengers slip and fall as they descend the bus. When not freezing, the water sprays those passing on the sidewalk. One needs about half dozen bags of macadam to fill the depression.

Without avail over seven years, I have contacted Council Members Lappin and Garodnick, Mayor Bloomberg, and State Assemblyman Micah Kellner about this. Please help.
